Mt. Everest Southside

Mt. Everest: Dave Checks at Camp 2 after Summit Bid

Update 7:21 p.m. PST:
Mark Tucker sent a message that the team is descending from Camp 1 to Basecamp.  All is well!

Voicemail update 7:20 a.m. PST:
Hey, this is Dave Hahn calling from Advanced Base Camp once again.  We finished our whirlwind tour of the upper mountain. You remember we went from here, 21,300, to nearly 26,000 feet the South Col and went to the summit this morning.  And then all the way back down here to Advanced Base Camp. So a long day of climbing and an exciting day of climbing for myself, Seth, Kaji and Tshering.  With Gyaljen playing lifeguard back at the South Col looking out for us and having some hot drinks ready when we got back there - which was pretty nice. And we loaded everything up, up there at the Col and came down with the pretty heavy packs down the Lhotse Face. It feels very good to be a little bit lower on the mountain but what a big day!  Certainly intended to give a voice dispatch from the summit, had the sat phone up there but there was a little bit of a cold wind blowing from the north, made it hard to do things like work with your fingers with your gloves off and make phone calls and things like that. But we were able to talk to Mark Tucker down a base camp on the radio and Dan as well who was standing down there with Lam Babu and our whole Base Camp staff.  So, that was nice to be able to connect with those guys, while we were up there. (broken transmission).

Conditions weren’t all that bad, ended up a pretty good weather summit day but a little cold. Wind kind of goes with what we consider a good day. Anyway this was a good day. And now it’s clearly the season is changed. And it’s time to get off the mountain, it’s heating up. The anchors we’re melting out on our way down the Lhotse Face and we had to be pretty careful of that. So we’re taking that as a sign that it is time to be heading down.  Alright, bye for now. Thank you.
